The Kansas City Chiefs cut cornerback Stanford Routt after Week 9—just eight games into his three-year, $18 million contract—leaving the door wide open for an NFL contender to claim him off of waivers for the playoff push.

There's no doubt that Routt has been a disappointment in 2012, but then again, so has the entire Chiefs defense. Routt is a veteran player who has had success in the NFL before this season, and he can surely help a team in need of depth and talent at the cornerback position.
So, which teams should claim him?
